Easy Cheesy Whole Wheat Crackers.
I realize that sharing these crackers after sharing red velvet cookies is like getting dumped after an exceptional first date. I may as well talk to you about cardboard.
But I share all of my adventures in the kitchen with you, so I couldn’t let this one go by the wayside. Especially since these were extremely tasty and it was my first cracker-making venture.
And while they may look like cardboard, they (surprisingly!) tasted hearty and crunchy and cheesy.
I’m not a huge cracker fan. Occasionally I crave the “crunch” of certain snacks, but I’d usually much rather swim in a big pool of chocolate and peanut butter.
Mr. How Sweet on the other hand is a huge crunchy snack lover. Most nights after dinner, after he tells me he is stuffed to the gills and can’t even imagine eating dessert, I find him munching on 10 pretzel sticks.
Needless to say, these crackers were a big hit in our house. Bonus points for them being 100% whole wheat – especially since that means I topped them with giant chunks of gouda cheese and a big slather of pumpkin butter.
Easy Cheesy Whole Wheat Crackers
1 3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup warm water + 1-2 tablespoons
1/4 cup parmesan cheese + more for sprinkling
Preheat oven to 400.
Mix dry ingredients together, add parmesan cheese, then add oil and 1/2 cup water. Mix until a dough forms. Add additional water if needed. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and lightly flour. Roll dough out until very thin. Using a pizza cutter, draw lines cutting squares in the dough. They crackers will separate as they bake. Sprinkle with additional parmesan cheese. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy.
Ever tried your hand at homemade crackers? Now that I got these easy ones out of the way, I need a more complicated recipe.

I’ve never baked crackers, but you make it look so easy. And Gouda and pumpkin butter? You got me!
I made some crackers from the Primal Blueprint book over the summer… cashews, pine nuts & basil, etc… SO good!
Jason is the same way… we’ll have a huge dinner, and 20 minutes later he’s eating his almonds. :D
Yummers, I have never made my own crackers. Looks like wheat thins. :)

I am a cracker fanatic! If I can find a good batch that I can make on my own, that would be a homerun! They look great :)
these look AWESOME! next time i make crackers i’m going to make them all pretty like yours :)
i made a batch a few weeks ago—went for the more “authentic” look but the taste was perfect! http://www.thesweetslife.com/2010/09/basil-parmesan-crackers.html
Hahaha, I love your analogy but cheesey carbs are ALMOST as tempting as red velvet cookies. Okay, not really, but they still look really good :)
these are awesome looking!!!!
i have made my own version in my dehyd before and they were vegan and GF but I have never made anything in an oven even tho i told readers they could and some said they tried and had good results but yours look professional!!!! I heard Nabisco wanted to give you a job!!!! :)
I’ve been wanting to make crackers from scratch but haven’t had a good recipe to use- these look simple and have cheese in them, so I’m basically sold. :)
What did you use to mix the dough? Hands, spatula, mixer?
Just a good ol’ spoon. :)
for some reason making homemade crackers or hard things like biscotti scare me! i dont know why but they do! now that I see yuo do it step by step its a little less intimidating though :) these look SO good!! mmm topped with cheese
I’ve never considered making my own crackers, but I have to say you’ve completely inspired me!! These look absolutely amazing and right up my alley.
Wow, you did an excellent job! :) Pretty pictures!
These look WAY better than store bought crackers! I haven’t ever made my own crackers, but these look awesome. And I bet moms would have fun letting their kids use cookie cutters to make fun shapes!
I’ve never even thought about making crackers. Super impressed!
I haven’t made crackers yet, but my family has made homemade communion wafers several times. They were so good that many of them often never made it to the church!
Um, the cookies AND the crackers look insanely good. I want to try both!
these look so cute and yummy:) thank you for sharing this.
Who needs Cheese-Its when you can *Poof* whip up your own yummy, cheesy crackers?! You continue to amaze me..
How fun!! I’m a cheese and cracker girl (over PB and chocolate sorry!) – I have to try making my own crackers!
Joy The Baker has a great recipe for poppy seed crackers. If I had all the time in the world i would make them each week.
your crackers are WAY pretty! they look like cheeze-its…but better :)
Your opening cracked me up!!!! LOL!
I am like your hubby re: salty snacks, so I think I am acually more drawn to the crackers then the RV cookies!!!
Sorry your pumpkins didn’t turn out- I am a crafty person, but can’t cook, so we are even!
New to your blog, and glad to have subscribed- you have a lovely way with words!
I don’t mind that these came after red velvet because they soud cheesy and delicious.
I love it! Homemade crackers! Yum!
Earlier this afternoon (before I saw your post), I was thinking that I need to try making some homemade crackers. Sometimes I think you read my mind! These look great… And reaffirmed my decision to make some crackers.

Thanks for the recipe. I have been looking for an easy cracker recipe and something to use the pastry flour I have. I modified it a bit with sharp cheddar, and they were delicious! I hope you do not mind, I linked back to your recipe on my blog.
